image of Hungary: Towards a Strategic State Approach

This report presents the findings and recommendations from analysis conducted by the OECD as part of the OECD-Hungary Strategic Partnership for Public Administration Reform. Through this initiative, the OECD has supported the government of Hungary in putting in place some of the key building blocks of a “strategic state”. The report’s recommendations can be expected to contribute to strengthening the efficiency, effectiveness, transparency and integrity of the public administration and contribute to supporting sustainable and inclusive growth and development in Hungary.


Foreword and acknowledgements

Governments need to respond to a widening range of fiscal, economic, social and political challenges. Responding to these challenges requires a “Strategic State” approach that emphasises leadership and stewardship from the centre, integrity and transparency, the importance of networks and institutions (both inside and outside government), the need to draw inspiration from sub-national initiatives and citizens, and, crucially, effective implementation of strategies and policies in support of positive outcomes and impacts for a country’s economy and society. A “Strategic State” can support policies and programmes for growth and well-being and build trust in the capacity of governments to deliver for citizens and businesses.
